Economic catastrophe usually sparks social protest and demands for change, but when Thomas Frank, the great chronicler of American paradox, set out in 2009 to look for American discontent, he found only wildly unexpected results: The American Right was strangely reinvigorated by the arrival of hard times. As a result, Frank, author of Pity the Billionaire, offers a diagnosis of the cultural malady that has transformed collapse into profit, reconceived the Founding Fathers as heroes from an Ayn Rand novel, and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous. Thanks to Seattle Town Hall and University Bookstore Watch Pirate Television in King County channel 29/77  Mondays 8-9pm, Thurs. 1-2pm, & Sat. 1-2am PST or streaming live on Seattle Community Media.  Pirate TV streams several times a week on Puget Sound Access.  Pirate TV also broadcasts on Free Speech TV: Details listed in FStv Schedule.  See also: FStv PirateTV Website,  Pirate TV Archive:
